    time to completely rehydrate

    im just getting over the stomach flu which left me in bed for about a day and a half and i didnt eat anything nor drink anything during that time. i finally started eating on the night of the 2nd day, so obviously i was dehydrated. about how long does it take to COMPLETELY get all the water back in my system and get back to my normal weight??

    Depending on your water loss it shouldn't take any longer than 24 hours to rehydrate, given that you're still alive. Restoring glycogen, etc might take a little longer.

    i dont know if this is just placebo or what, but the day after drinking when im really dehydrated, a few grams of creatine and a jug of water have me feeling a lot better about myself. Give it a try and be sure to get some good food in you too.
